Fair warning to the boys who don't want to read Dealing here with some menopausal issues...such as prolonged bleeding...and not really thrilled with the dr's 'oh boy, let's try A, B, or C' answers. I'm only getting a period every three to four months, but those that I get are whoppers. I'd hemoraged pretty bad a couple years ago, but it hasn't happened since. Still, my blood count gets a bit low if it's been a heavy flow, and I feel tired (naps are nice!) In anycase, the consensus is that I could be at the end of the menopausal road, so I'm reluctant to try anything invasive if I can avoid it (and not sure why they all want to push scraping, inserting, and removal tactics on me.) I asked for a progesterone pill yesterday (by way of message, as the NP had left for home)...she called back and left a message saying no due to my 'history.' She'd given me some in August and they'd slowed me down, then stopped the bleeding, so I didn't think it'd be an issue, especially considering how seldom I have periods. :shrug: I'm just figuring this is a natural part of aging, and it doesn't bother me to wait it out and feel a bit fatigued now and then. I'm not going to be stupid and let myself bleed to death (but I guess the medical community thinks that's my solution), I just would like to work at this from a more natural angle, if that makes sense. Anyway...I've decided that I'd like to try making my own cream, which I don't think works as well as the pills, but that's where I am at the moment. I've been reading the labels, and it appears that they all have progesterone UPS in them...I'm wondering if anyone knows a source for purchasing this? I've read that soy is a natural carrier of it, but I'm not thinking that it will be strong enough. I suppose one could use nothing but soy as a massage oil...wonder what percentage of progesterone it carries? Any thoughts?
